Trumped: What the new U.S. President will do about North Korea

With Trump in the White House, the risk of conflict on the peninsula is higher than ever

The unthinkable has happened: Donald Trump, a narcissistic billionaire, adept in presenting himself as a “man out of the crowd,” is going to be the next President of the United States of America. This turn of events is unexpected, and has once again confirmed that, for whatever reason, polls are increasingly misleading in the modern world.

But humankind has seen and survived worse disasters, and has done so while remaining calm and using its brain. Perhaps it is time for us to emulate our ancestors who had to deal with an Ice Age and the ferocious Sabretooth, and try to sort out what has happened and, above all, what we should expect.
